Stuart Weitzman is an American shoe designer who has been designing luxury shoes for his company of the same name for the last thirty years. His trademark design features include the use of materials that are not often used in shoe manufacture, including cork, lucite, 24 carat gold, tanzanite and diamonds - the shoes to the left are set with tanzanites and diamonds and allegedly cost $2 million (about £1.3 million). Fortunately, not all his shoes are that expensive - especially if you buy in the sale or at a discount (see shopping online, below).
Stuart Weitzman pays a great deal of attention to the finer detail in the design of every shoe and boot that he sells, although all his shoes are manufactured in Spain. He also recently started to produce a small range of designer bags to the same exacting standards.
Many "A" list celebrities are fans of Stuart Weitzman shoes, including Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon Stone. Even "Slumdogs Millionaire" star Freida Pinto has been spotted in a pair of Stuart Weitzman peep toe stilettos.
There are Stuart Weitzman boutiques scattered across the globe, in places as diverse as Saint Tropez, Hawaii, The Caribbean, Athens, Hong Kong, Jakarta and Barcelona. Amazingly, there is no Stuart Weitzman boutique in London.
Harrods, the world famous department store based in Knightsbridge, London, has rather a nice range of Stuart Weitzmans shoes online. Although based in the UK, Harrods will deliver worldwide. I particularly like the Primerib Patent Sandals (on the left).
Selfridges also has a very smart range of Stuart Weitzman court shoes and platform courts online. Selfridges deliver to the UK only.
Another of my favourite places is E&A Moda. E&A Moda are an online designer outlet, so the prices on the Stuart Weitzman shoes are very competitive. At the time or writing, there are reductions on Stuart Weitzman knee high and over the knee boots, laced shoe boots, high heeled platform pumps, slingback sandals and ankle boots.
Yoox also sell an extensive range of Stuart Weitzman women's footwear including boots, high heeled shoes, closed toe slip ons and mocassins. You can choose from the:
Both of the above companies, although UK based, offer worldwide delivery, so now is a good time for customers from the outside the UK to pick up a few bargains, as many currencies appear strong against our weak pound right now.
